I have a Mid-2012 MacbookAir with all the latest software updates. There are only three firmware updates that always show up over and over again after I've installed them. I've tried everything but the firmware just won't get updated.
- Macbook Air SMC Firmware Update 1.9
- Thunderbolt Firmware Update 1.2
- Macbook Air Flash Storage Firmware Update 1.1
What I've tried:
- Reset SMC
- Fix drive and drive permissions in recovery mode
- Install updates manually from apple.com in safe-mode
- Delete contents of /system/library/firmware updates/ folder
Yes the charger has been connected to the computer while updating. I have never used FileVault so it's not on. My computer is working fine, but I'd like to have these updates installed because they fix some serious problems that might eventually break my computer or erase all my data if left unfixed. On top of that I can't install Mavericks until I have Flash Storage Firmware 1.1 update installed.
Does anyone have any ideas what to do next?
I fixed the problem my reinstalling OS X.
While I was installing the new OS, I got a notification saying that my Macintosh HD partition was not GUID partitioned, so I had to manually repartition it for the installation to work. That might have been the source of the firmware update problems.
I might have messed up the partitions earlier while I was installing Windows and deleted the Recovery 10.8 partition.
